Obama's ultimate religion problem

"You need to come to church in the first place precisely because you are first of this world, not apart from it. You need to embrace Christ precisely because you have sins to wash away - because you are human and need an ally in this difficult journey."
Barack Obama, Call to Renewal Keynote Address, Wednesday, June 28, 2006.

What? Obama said this??!! :D

This speech is one for which James Dobson is excoriating Obama over now. Methinks the problem is not that Obama is anti-God but that he has tapped into some sort of actual, biblical orthodoxy without toeing the line of the political agenda that Dobson has wrapped around it.
